The call of adventure always seems to hang up whenever Randelgast Jones tries to answer it, leaving him facing the dull future of working in his family’s successful potion shop. But when a powerful artifact is stolen from his parents and puts them under a terrible curse, Ran finally gets the quest he’s been after his whole life. He and his siblings set off to find the missing artifact – and its trail leads them from their homeland of Primaterra to the very strange realm of…Earth.
Mad Cave’s upcoming series will take you between two magical lands. When an important artifact is stolen from Ran and his family in Primaterra, he and his siblings must follow it to a dangerous foreign land – Seattle, Washington, circa 1992! At its heart, Potions Inc. is a coming-of-age fantasy story following 3 siblings on a quest to save their home while going on a journey of self discovery.
In the ethereal realm of Primaterra, alchemists, wand-users, and sorcerers coexist. Just about everything is possible, and magic is the norm. If you’re searching for a summoning potion, the Jones family potion shop has the perfect brew for your needs. As a matter of fact, give Potions Inc. a ring (800.725.0358)! I’m sure Ran’s sibling Asterus would be more than happy to tell you all about the family specials!
“Getting brought on to Potions Inc. was a true pleasure for me – it mixed some of my favorite things (humor, fantasy, and 90s references) into one package. I was given so many tools to help build the story, and best of all, I got to collaborate with a fantastic team; editor Erica Schultz, artist Stelladia, and cover artist Natasha Alterici. Between the four of us we came up with a fully realized and fun little universe, and then we let the characters loose to play–it made the job feel like the opposite of work for me. I can’t wait for folks to meet the Jones siblings and learn all about the magic of Primaterra.” – Writer, Erik Burnham
“As a 90s child with a deep love for magic and humor this has been a dream project to me. These characters have been part of my family for a while now, a bright spot in the middle of this turbulent world we are living in right now. I hope this story brings you joy! I couldn’t ask for a better team, and Mad Cave is a great home for the Jones. Time to release some magic!” – Artist, Stelladia
